As the Carolina Hurricanes tailspin out of playoff contention, it’s good to know that some of the team’s followers can find some humour in it all.

A night after falling 6-3 to the New York Rangers, in which the Canes allowed three goals in the last eight minutes of the game, Carolina had another, far worse meltdown. Despite carrying a 4-1 lead going into the last half of the third period against Boston, the Hurricanes found a way to lose in regulation by two.

The loss pushed the Hurricanes to 3-6-1 in their past 10 games, and kept them seven points out of a wild-card spot with just 12 games remaining.

The highlight of such a miserable loss was surely the recap given by Raleigh sports anchor Mark Armstrong, whose colourful comments hyped up the playoff bubble team — and completely glossed over the amazing Bruins comeback.

“People far smarter than me pegged the Carolina Hurricanes’ playoff chances entering tonight at roughly four per cent, or put another way, a 1 in 25 shot,” Armstrong started. “Certainly not likely, but this squad has moxie, it’s got the heart of a lion and the never-say-die attitude that put a man on the moon I tell ya. Those poor Boston Bruins never stood a chance on this night.”

The highlights came fast, furious, and focused on a ferocious Carolina attack.

On Carolina’s second goal: “The Canes power play, the tip of a remorseless spear, ruthless stuff here from Aho to Teravainen make it 2-1 and the rout was on.”

On Carolina’s third goal: “The Bruins were begging for mercy, but Justin Williams says none will be granted.”

On Elias Lindholm’s rush that led to Brock McGinn’s goal, which gave Carolina a commanding 4-1 lead: “Stampeding over the plains like Genghis Khan through Eurasia, momentarily repelled, but Brock McGinn’s second wave would win the day and at that point Boston cried out to the heavens in great fruitless anguish.”

At this point, if you were a fan of the Hurricanes and getting your news of this game from Armstrong, you were probably in pretty high spirit. But as the game went oh so wrong, you may have done a double-take on the last few seconds of the highlight pack.

In the final 10 minutes of the game, Boston got a hat trick from David Pastrnak and goals from rookies Matt Grzelcyk and Danton Heinen as Carolina melted away. And after an electrifying recap to this point, Armstrong simply summed up Boston’s late charge: “The Bs scored five straight in the third to win 6-4.”
